📣🚨 Dolly Parton Stands Alone at the National Conference of State Legislatures
The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), which works “to sharpen the skills of lawmakers and legislative staff in every state,” is holding its annual summit from Aug 5-8 in Nashville. The current line up of featured speakers includes Dolly and 7 — count ‘em — 7 dudes and no women of color. NCSL needs to correct this imbalance.
Let’s get started early while they still have time to show they value 51% of the population state legislators represent. They do have time to fix this.
📣🚨 Hey @NCSLorg, there’s only 1 woman on your featured speaker list for #NCSLSummit. 1 out of 8 is pathetic, but there’s still time to fix it. Do better! #GenderAvenger https://www.genderavenger.com/blog/dolly-parton-stands-alone
